A Letter from Tyler & Amanda
Hi there! We are excited to share a little bit about ourselves with you, and we are very much looking forward to learning more about you! We feel very blessed with the amazing life that we have, and cannot wait to share that with a child. We truly feel like we embrace every moment and memory. We will provide your child with a house full of love and laughter, lots of grace, tons of family, and unforgettable trips and adventures. Most of all, we will teach your child about Jesus and raise him/her in a family that was built on a foundation of faith. We would love to learn more about your hopes and dreams! We are open to pictures, letters, and visits based on your comfort level.
We met seven years ago through a group of mutual friends. We were all planning a short mission trip to Guatemala and were able to really bond through this fun experience. Since then, our life has been filled with many more wonderful moments shared together and so much love. In our free time we go to new restaurants, take weekend trips, go to the zoo and the aquarium, go to baseball, football, and basketball games, bake together, spend time with family, and just cherish the small moments of life together.
We are so excited to share all of this with your child! Mostly, we cannot wait to read books together, play in the playroom, have movie nights, and teach your child everything that we know. Our home is always full of love and fun!
Tyler is the most consistent and loving person that I know. He has been the absolute best partner for the past seven years and I know he will be the best dad. Tyler is a Youth Pastor at a wonderful church in our town. I love leading with him in our church and seeing how compassionate he is toward others. In his free time, Tyler watches baseball, enjoys reading, baking, and spending time with family. He will be such a fun and caring father and he is so excited to pass on his love of travel, learning, baking, and baseball to your child.
Amanda is one of the most fun and caring people I’ve ever met. She is a Case Manager for Spinal Cord Injury Patients at a Hospital in our town. She is incredibly driven and focused, but is also very laid back and funny. She is always trying out new recipes in the kitchen, planning new fun events and trips for us, and decorating our home in new and different ways. She is also always willing to help wherever she sees that help is needed and genuinely cares for every person she meets. She will be an amazing and very nurturing mother and she is so excited to pass on her creative spirit and her love for trying new things to your child.
We live in a wonderful three-bedroom home in a beautiful family-friendly neighborhood. There are always children playing outside and we talk with all of our neighbors. Our neighborhood has some lovely outdoor areas with gazebos and flower gardens to explore, and we live centrally located to great schools and local shops and restaurants. We are so excited to customize a nursery based on your child, and we would love input from you on this fun project if you have any ideas! We also have a playroom filled with toys and tons of books. Our favorite part about our home is how open it is inside. Amanda loves to re-design rooms and chooses beautiful and sentimental pieces to display around the home.
Family is so important to us and we spend a lot of time with them. We have a large extended family and most of them live in our town, or in the next town over. We often spend weekends with family or meet them for dinner after work in the evenings. Our parents cannot wait to become grandparents! Adoption is close to all of our hearts and they cannot wait to welcome your child into our family! Tyler’s parents own a sheep and honey farm and they cannot wait to teach your child all about sheep and freshly grown fruits and vegetables. Amanda’s dad and step-mother are creative and great at fixing everything! They look forward to teaching your child how to build things from scratch! Amanda’s mother and step-father already have a room put together filled with tons of toys to spend lots of quality time with your child.
We promise to help your child grow into the best version of themselves, do silly and fun things with them every single day, give them abundant grace, and teach them everything that we know. Above all, we promise to give them a home and family filled with faith and prayer. We will surround your child with a supportive and nurturing family that celebrates your child and all of their achievements in life. We promise to be the best version of ourselves for them and to love them with our whole hearts.
We would love to have an open relationship with you and even your family based on your comfort level. We are open to letters, pictures, and visits. We will honor your child’s heritage and background and teach them all about their own history. You will always be part of their lives, and we celebrate that!

|More About Our Family|
|Our Special Interests|
We absolutely love spending time with family and friends. We also love traveling to new places - even if just for the weekend. Not only are we adventurous with travel, but we are also adventurous with food. We love to try new local restaurants, food from different cultures, and of course we have some favorite staples. We have tons of neighborhood get-togethers with friends and family - there is always something to celebrate! We also love to work puzzles, watch movies, bake, and just be silly with each other. Laughter often fills our house!
Faith and spirituality is very important to us. We believe that Jesus teaches us how to love unconditionally and that we should share that love with others. Tyler is a student pastor and we spend lots of time at our church. We have so many fun memories leading youth and worshiping together. Our faith is the foundation of our relationship together and the foundation of everything that we do. We truly feel that the most important thing we will teach a child is the love of Jesus. Because of our faith we believe in grace, mercy, and compassion.
|Our Musical Interest|
Music is so much fun! Tyler enjoys Needtobreathe. He can also play the guitar and sing, and he often does this at church. Amanda likes to listen to a large variety of music. Taylor Swift, Bethel, Beyonce, etc. The list could go on and on. We usually listen to music in the car and while cooking dinner.
|About Our Home|
We live in a wonderful neighborhood in a town filled with lots of things to do! It isn't too big, it isn't too small, and we love it! We live very close to a top rated elementary school, a beautiful park, and a quiet walking trial. Our house is covered with photos of special memories and different things we have collected from our travels. Amanda enjoys home decor and often re-designs a room. We have a nursery and a playroom right down the hall. My favorite thing about our house is the swing on the front porch, the nursery, and of course the living room where we spend most of our time.
